Clean air buses

London Mayor Sadiq Khan is cleaning up London’s bus routes. In West Norwood our #2,  #415 and  #249 buses are some of the cleanest with  Euro VI Hybrid engines. The #3 and #68 are new routemasters and have  Euro VI engines.

Some of the older buses #417, #432 and P13 with Euro V diesel engines are retrofitted with ad blue to reduce nitrogen oxides and thus to meet Euro VI standard.

Your Labour councillors are campaigning for all West Norwood buses to have clean engines. To support our campaign email Florence Eshalomi, our representative on the London Assembly  Florence.Eshalomi@london.gov.uk

The council works with the Mayor on cleaning up London and helps  to clean up our air by  promoting electric cars & charging points, more cycling and  more street trees.  Householder need to rethink wood burning stoves too. And we can all campaign to make sure the Conservative Brexit keeps Europe’s tough pollution controls.

London Policing Plan 2017 – 2021

Sadiq Khan is consulting on the new draft policing plan for London  with plans to crack down on knife crime and improve victims services. Our London  Mayor is proposing three new London-wide commitments:

  • keeping children and young people safe
  • tackling violence against women and girls
  • and standing together against extremism, hatred and intolerance

To have a say on this draft plan: go to the consultation website.

Deadline for comments is Thursday 2nd March 2017

At  a time when government is cutting public sector budgets  the London Metropolitan police are having to make considerable savings. £600m efficiency savings have been made since 2019 and the government requires a further £400m savings by 2020.
